Hello Karl, I have a small space to work with so at the moment I need gear I can pack out of the way. I have watched you build your scrim with Lee 216 diffusion paper then I came across the Manfrotto skylite rapid midi kit (5×5) with 1.25 stops(not sure if you are familiar with this) This will be my first stab at using a scrim instead of just softbox, my question is do you know if the Manfrotto diffussion I listed is close to the Lee for spreading light? I know they are different manufacturers so any input would be much appreciated. Thank you and keep up the excellent visual training, just keep the same intro music its very soothing.
Hi, yes they can work well as long as they have no seams in the middle.
